David Bowie confirms retirement from touring

David Bowie has confirmed that he has definitely retired from touring for good.

That’s according to Bowie’s longtime booking agent John Giddings, managing director of Solo Music Agency.

“David Bowie is one of the best artists I’ve ever worked with. But every time I see him now, before I even speak to him, he goes, ‘I’m not touring’ and I say, ‘I’m not asking’,” said Giddings during an interview at the recent International Festival Forum (IFF), a two-day event aimed at festivals and booking agents. Giddings promoted Bowie’s 1987 Glass Spider shows at Wembley Stadium. He also represents major artists such as Madonna and U2.

Giddings added: “David has decided to retire and, like Phil Collins, you can’t demand these people go out there again and again and again. I’m really pleased and proud that the last show he ever did in the UK was the 2004 Isle Of Wight Festival.”
